Fluid Capacities

Ok guys, its time for my 5K service and I need to know what the fluid capacities are for the engine, tranny and primary. Now before you start flaming me about buying the service manual I have one for a 06 Touring bike and I know where all the drains and such are. Just don't want to spend the $65 for the 2012 book right now. So if anyone is willing to help I would appreciate it. Thanks!!

Currently bikeless but sticking around for knowledge.

2008 fat boy. Loved her but had to let her go for the glide I've been eyeing for a while now.

+1 All of that info is in your owners manual. Or are you using it to level a table?

I was going to mention the OM also, JTB pretty much nailed the answer though, now you just have to decide what brand of fluid you want to use, that's a whole other subject.

2010 FLTRX With Plenty of extras, goes by the name "Hardeshia"

My 2012 OM says 28 oz transmission fluid. Do others say 32?

As stated, all quantities in free owners' manual.


My 2013 calls for: 3 quarts engine oil (then recheck), 28 oz tranny, 38 oz (wet) 45 (dry) primary. OK, the last part could be a lot clearer...
